A while back I shared a press release from Gollancz concerning the development of a game book based on Richard K Morgan’s A Land Fit For Heroes. It’s launched on mobile devices (PC comes later)…

The game sounds dark and gritty, just like Morgan’s work. Check out the blurb below..

A LAND FIT FOR HEROES is a profound story of three distinct characters falling into a sequence of bloodthirsty events full of gore and mystery. It is not your average gamebook; A LAND FIT FOR HEROES is darker, deeper and very explicit, primarily its narrative is targeted towards a mature audience. The main characters are not traditional heroes but outcasts with marred souls and questionable pasts. This is a story and character design with a truly dark twist; readers may be shocked but they will still be enthralled by Morgan’s rich and mysterious dark fantasy presented in an entirely unique format for the book series.

Based on Richard Morgan’s trilogy of dark fantasy novels, A LAND FIT FOR HEROES is the new interactive gamebook experience telling the story of three unlikely heroes with three interlocking storylines. Kirellin of House Caith is a skilled war veteran, a man with a death wish who suffers the mental trauma from years of combat. Calnar is a young Majak warrior,repeatedly raped by his father during his childhood, he channels his inner rage as one of the fiercest fighters in bloody combat. Ilaria is an accomplished thief with a tortured past filled with violence and personal anguish. Each of their paths will cross in this adventure where they are tested to the extreme – but wherein the reader decides upon their fates. Children go missing in the marshes. Ancient spirits awaken. Powerful machine-demons manipulate the fate of mankind. But all of this is just a game for even darker forces. In the first of its kind, bestselling author Richard Morgan brings his trilogy of novels to life as a three-player gamebook set in the world of Land Fit For Heroes.
